On Memorial Day weekend, Morris County Prosecutor Fredric M. Knapp reminds Morris County residents to remember and honor the sacrifice of our brave men and women Armed Forces Members who have died serving our country.
This year presents a challenge to the way we traditionally honor their memories, as we cannot gather for parades or services as we normally would do. Our residents continue to abide by social distancing guidelines intended to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Prosecutor Knapp said “Despite the lack of our traditional parades and remembrance ceremonies due to the pandemic, we can not make it easy to forget why Memorial Day is significant. This Memorial Day weekend, please remember to take time to honor our fallen members of the United States Armed Forces. It is also important to remember that while many celebrate the unofficial kickoff to summer, our law enforcement officers, healthcare workers, and first reponders continue to work during this emergency to keep Morris County residents safe.”
